Kerberos extentions will happen for other reasons, but until extentions
happen, microsoft have not really any chance other "hijacking"
GeneralString.  Its hardly Microsofts fault that krb-wg moves with the
speed of a snail.  GeneralString in theory supports i18n, but not really
because of iso brokenness.

I'm sure the krb-wg will wellcome any help from you to make sure kerberos
extentions happen faster.
